true, but he wont learn that by playing on the 4th line, ice time ON D, has to be given...
One more chance for Weber. Why not at this point?

In all seriousness, do you really think that Weber has "not had his chance". When will it be enough? When he has gone through his 6th coach (already on his 4th now) who does not have the confidence to make him a "every game" player? When he is 28 years old? What excuse will be thrown around when he is not a full time D on the Habs by that point?

I agree, if the Habs are not making the playoffs, it is time to see where all the young guys are at. Play them, evaluate where they are at, make a decision. Either build with them, or use them to make your team better somehow else.
